The Priory Inn celebrates 200th live music act

The 200th live music performance at The Priory Inn will be stylishly delivered by popular singer songwriter Dik Cadbury during the evening of Easter Sunday 12th April.

The Priory Inn - a family-friendly hotel and restaurant in Tetbury - is locally renowned for its commitment to buying food and drink from within a 30 mile radius of its location (known as its �30 Mile Food Zone�). The owners� dedication to delivering a genuine, uncomplicated product with no false pretensions � underlined by raw simplicity has resulted in a loyal following for its acoustic music on Sunday nights.

Owner Tanya Kelly says: �Live music is uplifting and inspirational � and in a restaurant such as ours, it can be an intense and personal experience for both the artist and audience. This is why our customers and musicians love the special atmosphere on Sunday evenings and why we will continue to support live music. In line with our objective of keeping our business within the local area, our Sunday performers are nearly always from Bath, Bristol or Gloucester (and sometimes even Tetbury!). We are thrilled that Dik is playing for us on our 200th live performance!�

Performing by popular demand on the occasion of The Priory Inn�s 200th live performance is Dik Cadbury. Now London based, he maintains strong roots in Gloucestershire as he is bassist, fiddle player, guitarist and vocalist with the county�s very own 70�s folk-rockers Decameron. Dik said �It is a pleasure to be playing the 200th live performance at The Priory Inn as I�m able to indulge my own musical taste and play to a discerning, listening audience. Playing solo on Easter Sunday, I�ll be accompanied by my 6 and 12-string guitars and will play a mellow mix of original songs and some favourite covers. I�d say it�s a great chance for local people to listen to some chilled-out Sunday evening music with a glass of wine or pint and maybe a bite to eat from the Priory�s very tempting menu!� Dik will be promoting the performance live on Johnny Coppin�s Folk and Roots Show on BBC Radio Gloucestershire on Sunday 5th April between 2-3pm.

The 200th live performance starts at 8pm on Sunday 12th April and ends at approximately 10.30pm. Entrance is free and table reservations are recommended.
